Michael Lasky con Getting Started with Windows 8 (The Windows 8 Guide Book 1) (English Edition)
These days, we have no shortage of polarizing topics, even in the digital world: Mac vs. Windows, Android vs. iPhone, Chrome vs. Firefox vs. Internet Explorer, DRM, WikiLeaks, etc., etc. So it’s no small irony that Microsoft has released its most polarizing operating system ever. PC users seem to either love or hate Windows 8.
The first section of this guide – An introduction to Windows 8 – covers the confusing differences between Windows 8 and Window RT – two operating systems that look and work in very similar ways, but have some extraordinarily important differences.
We then take you through the basics of navigating Windows 8′s dual (some say, dueling) interfaces and some important initial setup steps.
In the second section – Customizing your new Win8 installation – we delve into the Windows 8 tiles, how to get the most out of File Explorer (formerly Windows Explorer), and how to use standard keyboard controls to navigated Win8′s touch-centric interface.
